It is to feel the weight of your soul
crushing down upon your heart
each time he looks your way.
It is to feel the edges of heaven
warmed in its glowing peaceful light
each time his smile shines upon you
It is to reach the peak of your being
holding fast to life’s very limit
each time he speaks your name
It is to know the depth of trust
leading you through the dark
each time his hand holds yours
And it is to see your wild dreams
coming to pass all at once
each time he says, “I Love You”.
This… my dear one… you make me feel.
